    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley

    Pros

    It is an alright place to work. Most of the employees are fun to work with and want to do a good job. Review process is good. Compensation is average.

    Cons

    Benefits have gone down significantly, with no 401k matching and minimal raises across the board. HR seems out of touch with the needs of the employees.

    Pros

    RRD is a global company and there are several opportunities for advancement if you are willing to relocate. You will have to be patient and put in your time. Decisions are not made quickly.

    Cons

    Being in the manufacturing industry means that money is tight. There are not a lot of perks like PTO, raises, or benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase starting salary. Increase amount of vacation days. Invest more capital in the business to continue growth.

    I have been working at R.R. Donnelley as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    This particular facility was full of extremely kind, experienced people that were willing to give their own time to help you progress in your position and career. Willing to work with school schedule and family responsibilities.

    Cons

    Potential limits to growth if not willing to relocate, as people seemed to stay for a long time at the company. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a little more time to make the work facility more animated and lively. Was a bit drab and out of date, though not a big deal.
